With a PS Thank You to  The Dome , Edinburgh for their festive holiday
decorations captured in this wonderful image.

The ASF invites you to join us for  the 25th Annual Burns Night Celebration held in association with the University Club, New York, 
on Friday January 17th, 2020

The Burns Supper celebrates, in words and music, the immortal memory of Robert Burns and Scotland's heritage. 

Our musical program will be led by the award winning young Scottish team of Claire McKenzie and Scott Gilmour of Noisemaker.

We are also very honored that the historic Gregg Violin  will be a part of the program, being played during the  evening.

240 years ago Robert Burns's dancing master, William Gregg, played the fiddle as he taught Robert Burns dance steps. Burns was a keen and capable fiddler himself, so it is likely that he also played Gregg's  instrument. 

We are grateful to the National Trust for Scotland and the Scottish Government for arranging that the Gregg Violin is a part of our 2020 Burns Night Celebration.

With Glen Dronach Distillery offering the whisky tasting, a silent 
and live auction, address to the Haggis from Robbie Munro, 
music from Noisemaker - and concluding with "enthusiastic" 
reeling .. we feel sure it will be a wonderful evening.  Come Join Us.
